Director of Instruction
Santa Barbara, CA
Great players aren't necessarily the best teachers and many of the best teachers aren't great players. Don Parsons blends these skills in a way that allows his players to excel. As a player, Don won the 1988 California Amateur Championship at Pebble Beach, and his years of tournament experience means he knows how to help his players succeed.
As coach Don was named the 2003 Southern California PGA Teacher of the Year. Don loves to learn, and was among the first Directors for 5SK, has achieved the highest certification levels with the TPI, and serves on the Advisory Board for KVest.
Don's commitment to his players is unparalleled. Over the years he has sent over 90 junior players to play college golf and his players have had success at the highest levels. His simple communication style and depth of knowledge makes him a popular choice for serious golfers who want to perform their best. Don is the co-owner of Twin Lakes Golf Course in Santa Barbara, CA.
